Feb. 16, 2010

KALAMAZOO--Five Western Michigan University students have been named winners of the University's seventh electronic portfolio contest.

Electronic portfolio contest
Fall 2009 winners

  • Amy LeClair of Tawas City, Mich., who graduated in December with a major in Spanish secondary education.
  • Heather LeDuc of Clio, Mich., who graduated in December with a degree in elementary education.
  • Kimberly Miller of Wixom, Mich., who graduated in December with a major in painting in art and art education.
  • Nicole Vanderhoff of New Baltimore, Mich., a graduate student pursuing a degree in elementary education.
  • Naidra Walls of Detroit, a graduate student working on an master's degree in business administration.

Electronic portfolios can include such information as resumes, samples of class assignments and photos of students at work on a project. Students can make them available to prospective employers, friends, family or whomever they want, anywhere in the world. They may create them for a class, to meet requirements of an overall department program or just for fun.

The contest was sponsored by the associate provost for assessment and undergraduate studies. Examples of student-created portfolios were solicited during the fall semester, and a team of reviewers from WMU judged the entries. Portfolios were judged according to the students' use of iWebfolio portfolio software to present personal, professional and academic accomplishments electronically. The five winners will each receive a cash award.
